Alltech 2012 Lecture Tour Visits Raleigh

Feb 12, 2012

The 2012 Alltech Lecture Tour will visit 110 locations in 67 nations. It is expected that over 5,000 attendees will hear presentations by teams of Alltech scientists.

The purpose of the lecture tours is to acquaint faculty and students at universities, managers of production operations, regulators, scientists and poultry health professionals with advances in biotechnology and to detail innovations by Alltech.

The program arranged for the North Carolina Triangle took place at the prestigious Umstead Hotel near Raleigh on Friday 3rd January.

Dr. Paulo Rigolin discussed opportunities in agriculture, a topic of especial interest to the graduate students at North Carolina State University.  The challenges facing production in the proximal decade will be to make agriculture exciting, profitable and sustainable.  An immediate challenge facing the livestock industry is how best to use 53 million tons of DDGS which will be available in 2012.  Projects to add five incremental eggs over the productive life of a laying hen and parallel initiatives in broiler breeders, hogs and dairy were reviewed.  These advances will be achieved through application of nutreogenomics, pioneered by Alltech.  Studies conducted by the Company in collaboration with leading Land Grant universities have led to the principle of Programmed Feeding which has the potential to enhance the quality of beef, broiler meat and eggs.
